Possible federal investigation into SCANA and Santee Cooper

You are probably keeping up with this situation on your own, but here’s a recent development as reported by TheState.com:
S.C. lawmakers say a federal investigation into a move by SCANA and Santee Cooper to abandon two partially built nuclear reactors in Fairfield County could help get to the bottom of what went wrong.

Some said news of the probe Thursday validated the efforts of S.C. Senate and House committees investigating the project’s failure, which will cost S.C. power customers billions of dollars.

Others complained SCANA executives had been evasive in legislative hearings into the $9 billion debacle. One lawmaker, a former prosecutor, […]

Public Service Commissioner Screenings Suspended Indefinitely

One of the biggest stories in SC this summer is the abandonment of the power plant, the loss of over 5,000 jobs as a result, and the more than $9 BILLION dollars wasted.  Now, legislators have been holding hearings – most of the same legislators who approved the Base Load Review in the first place. Typical South Carolina.

Also typical? The cover up.  The screening process for the Public Service Commission (PSC), the board that regulates the state’s private utilities, has been suspended “until further notice.”

Perhaps you will call your representatives in Columbia and ask them about this.
